can someone suggest some good humbuckers with a high output but that are also not noisy that will sound good through a solid state amp?

Also on a side note so i don't start two threads would elixir guitar baritone strings 12-68 gauge be good for heavy metal in drop tunings(also standard) or is that just getting to big a gauge?

i'm a big fan of the Dimarzio Super Distortion. check out the Super 2 for a good neck pickup.

generally, as long as you're going with passive pickups they'll sound alright through a solid state. EMG's are high output, but not the best through a SS amp.

for the baritone it would be good for baritone tuning yes, but get much higher and you put a lot more stress on the neck.

Also what amp? Typically pickup changes don't have as marked an effect on your tone through SS amps than they do through tube amps.

Pickups will not help.

Change your amp, not your pickups. Pickups are for fine-tuning your sound, not changing it completely.
#12
Really not worth it, you'd just be wasting your money - you're expecting some drastic tonal change from a pickup change and it's simply not going to happen. At best you'll get a slight inmprovement in clarity but that's about it, I doubt you'd even notice.

Save up, and don't change pickups. 600USD in the US UsedMarket can get you alot.

You could also sell your Spider to raise your budget to maybe $300, but that still won't get you much.

I hope you don't mind driving/some of these amps will be solid-state.

http://nashville.craigslist.org/msg/1337769599.html (if you sell Spider and talk down price)

http://nashville.craigslist.org/msg/1331544337.html (sell spider and talk down, however you may have to do more to it like changing out the speaker)

I would search through your Craigslist, but it's a pain in the ass to search through ALL of it. You should keep looking though.

Maybe a used Peavey Valveking 112 or a Peavey Vypyr.

pickups are just EQ
don't change your pickups expecting a whole new sound
i did that when i was 15 and was sorely disappointed

you shouldn't be catering your pickups to your current line6 amp anyway that you will probably change in a year that is the biggest mistake ever
